Passionately Pink Event

October is breast cancer awareness month.

and, here on ABC 10, we will bring you a number of stories all this month about the importance of early diagnosis and treatment, survival and awareness.

tonight, details about an event this weekend in Marquette in which women can help advance detection measures and get pampered at the same time.

Lake-shore skin care is hosting the “passionately pink” fundraiser.

the esthetic center will be offering select facial treatments to women for a suggested donation.

all of the proceeds will go to Marquette general hospital to purchase new breast biopsy equipment.

The event is being held not only to raise the funds needed for the new equipment but also to encourage women to take a little time for themselves.

The “passionately pink” event takes place Saturday from 11 to 5 at Lake-Shore skin care in Marquette.

women can chose from three different treatments including micro dermabrasion, chemical peel, or a facial.

appointments are not necessary.
